A UNIQUE BOOKBINDING FACTORY & TRADITIONAL BOOKBINDING METHODS

"We develop the family secrets of the handmade book production.Welcome to our workshop. You will see the creation of the original bookbinding technique first-hand." Lida Mlichova, founder of the workshop.

Lida Mlichová’s Bookbinding Workshop is the only workshop of its kind in Slovakia, with a long family tradition, located in Zilina, Slovakia. The workshop is connected with the artist Jan Vrtilek´s work (1906 - 2000), Lida Mlichová’s father, a member of leading organization, Meister der Einbandkunst based in Munich.

Books from the workshop have won many awards at Slovak and international competitions. The bookbinding tradition began in Zilina in 1928 when John Vrtílek arrived and settled in Zilina. The workshop has been operating since 1990, as an independent family company. The workshop is led personally by Lida Mlichová.

"In a few steps from the Zilina City Theatre is another theatre, the theatre of beautiful books! It is the studio of Lida Mlichova. I have been looking forward to getting to know her and I am lucky to cooperate with her." Lubomir Feldek, writer.
